High dynamic range imaging High-dynamic-range (HDR) image made out of three pictures. Taken in Tronador, Argentina. High-dynamic-range imaging (HDRI or HDR) is a set of techniques used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than possible using standard digital imaging or photographic techniques. HDR images can represent more accurately the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, from direct sunlight to faint starlight, and is often captured by way of a plurality of differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter.[1][2][3][4] Non-HDR cameras take photographs with a limited exposure range, resulting in the loss of detail in bright or dark areas. The two primary types of HDR images are computer renderings and images resulting from merging multiple low-dynamic-range (LDR)[5] or standard-dynamic-range (SDR)[6] photographs. Photography[edit] Dynamic ranges of common devices Any camera that allows manual exposure control can create HDR images. Tone mapping[edit]

Collected Quotes from Albert Einstein [Note: This list of Einstein quotes was being forwarded around the Internet in e-mail, so I decided to put it on my web page. I'm afraid I can't vouch for its authenticity, tell you where it came from, who compiled the list, who Kevin Harris is, or anything like that. Still, the quotes are interesting and enlightening.] "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction." "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

A vow for 2011: No cheap chicken - Ethics of eating I was watching TV, and suddenly, to the shrieking strings of horror film music, there was thunder, lightning and breasts everywhere. “What’s hiding? What’s lurking?” I, too, will eat no more cheap chicken. But wait. A year ago today I had the honor of meeting Charles Gabriel, a master fryer of chicken. I thought about the decades Mr. So this, then, is my omnivore’s dilemma: Which is more important to me? In a way, it would be simpler to do the tougher thing: give up eating chicken (or, really, any other meat) entirely. One year I gave up beef, and I was really good about not straying. For starters, for my home, I will only buy chicken that is well raised, so that I will support the people doing that work. I’m still working on the answer to that, but I think that nebulousness is actually at the heart of this challenge: to learn to make my eating choices deliberately, consciously. So why start with chicken? Bird is our default meat, our “safe” meat.

Killing dinner - Food traditions After a tour of his garden, where tomatoes were bombing from the vines and melons lolled about like a bowling alley after close, my friend Shelby showed me his chickens. He opened the door to the coop, which he built in anticipation of this first batch of chicks. “Hey babes,” he cooed to them. “Hey, buddies,” he said. I think the feeling I felt at that moment could be called excitement. I also have to admit that, in a world where we romanticize farmers and food artisans, there was a certain fantasy to it. All week long, as I attended baking camp, I marveled at the yeasts and bacteria that we harness for bread, at the aliveness of bread. Saturday. We let the chickens out of the coop. After a few absurd minutes, Shelby emerges from the garden, holding the bird to his chest. Will I look into the bird’s eye? We dip the chicken in the boiling water and pluck his feathers. “How should we cook it?” I finished eating my piece of chicken leg and felt obligated to have a taste of breast.

Puma Knife Company USA - Official Online Store for Hunting, Sport and Knife Culture Since 1769 G. Roger Denson: Political Art Timeline, 1945-1966: Postwar Art of the Left This is Part 2 of the Timeline of Left Political Art. See Part 1, 1900-1944, on Huffington Post. I might have justifiably started this timeline of political art with the year 1932, when Stalin’s forced famine in the Ukraine killed 7 million people. Or 1933, when the first Nazi concentration camps at Orienburg, Dachau and Buchenwald opened. Or 1937, the year of the Japanese Rape of Nanjing. Sadly, as savage as their affronts to civilization are, none of these horrific events set precedents in history, nor generate an art of sustained protest and examination of conscience, comparable to the year 1945. For the better part of the year, an unprecedented mass of humanity around the world is either in the line of fire or following the barrage of carnage and barbarism flooding each radio dispatch and cinema newsreel heralding the Axis Powers’ defeat. Most demarcations of historical epochs are necessarily vague. 1950-53 In June of 1950, the Korean War breaks out. 1961-1989: Planners vs Public.
